That is the question and I just do not know the answer.
I am unsure if it is the pattern or the fabric or just both that is not quite jelling with me. Here is the pattern below.
|Pattern front KS 3670 .|
|A close up of the front yoke , pleat and back bias binding.|
The front yoke pattern piece is very interesting and confusing but of course by following the excellent instructions it all works out at the end. I doubled my fabric for the front and back yokes since my fabric is so sheer but this did nothing to aid in modesty as the yoke finishes above the bust line .However it did mean that I had no remnants left to feed that scrap bag ( which has a life of its own I am sure ) :) . 8 cms are allowed for this hem so I turned up the hem 4 cms and then another 4 cms and stitched. Overall the pattern is well drafted and the instructions are excellent as per usual with Kwik Sew.
The tunic is relatively long and could even be worn as a short dress . I have only one suitable bottom piece of clothing to wear with this which is part of reason why I am unsure about this top although I have possible plans to make some slim fitting olive green linen pants . The photos look OK though so I think I will put this in that magic wardrobe made famous by Mary Nanna and stew on it for a bit.
Any opinions good or bad ( I won`t sulk - I think ) or styling suggestions would be welcomed.
Until next time , Cheers Janine.
